Echo Published by The Nazraeli Press This first edition Hardbound book was limited to just 500 copies and has long been out of print, new. Burmese-born artist Chan Chao received wide critical acclaim for his first publication, Burma: Something Went Wrong (Nazraeli Press, 2000). His portraits of soldiers and civilians put a face to one of the most troubling and least understood countries of our world. The inclusion of these photographs in the 2002 Whitney Bienniale was widely praised as a highlight of that exhibition. Echo, the artist's second publication, is comprised of 28 portraits of female nudes; a far more common subject than that of his previous series, but one handled with the same grace, mutual trust between subject and artist, and masterful control of natural light, color and composition, for which the artist has become well known. The pictures display the timelessness of portrait photography at its best, and the cumulative beauty of human individuality. Echo is beautifully printed in process color on matt Japanese art paper, and case bound in natural Mafu. This first edition is limited to 500 copies, each with an original Type C print mounted on the front cover.
